Hi. This makes me sad. I have a P4 3.4 ghz, 2 gigs of ram, and a 128 mb ati radeon 9800 pro. Not much today, but I'm playing a full screen game called Gunz Online. I use the lowest possible resolution, even a special config, and in 6 and 8 man games I get rediculous fps. My computer should be destroying this game. I also use my 60" big screen TV to play. I've tried an infinite amount of settings. Here is the recommended hardware list: GeForce 4 MX or faster, 800 mhz p3 or greater, and 512 mb of ram. I DONT GET WHY I GET FPS. It's incredible! My only alternative is to try a new graphics card. I'm in the market for one now, and I'm not quite sure what I should be looking for. Is my computer PCI express compatable? AGP? Heh. It's a dell dimension xps gen 2.

Clean out your computer. Your card should be fine. Its probably your software, not hardware. It doesn't seem like that your card needs an upgrade....

Also, try and update drivers, and get full updates. It should not be anything with your hardware that you need to change. It looks like i should be able to play that thing on this ancient 2.0ghz with intel integrated graphics.

What exactly is your problem? It won't run? You get horrible screen framerates?

No. Try not. Do... or do not. There is no try.

okay, after a while of annoying trying to get the confirmation email sent to my inbox, i got on and played. I can play it with good framerates with a P4 2.0, intel integrated graphics, and a 256+128mb sticks of RAM. Its some trivial thing with your computer thats giving you bad framerates, because i'm still on like 800x600 setting, which isn't too bad. Thats not even including the other background programs that are running alongside that.
